Affirm Counseling's Services

At Affirm Counseling, I wholeheartedly embrace the Person-Centered and Feminist approaches. Here, you're encouraged to explore your experiences at your own pace. Your truths are uniquely yours, and I'm here as a compassionate companion, reflecting insights that could light your path. Through a feminist lens, I understand how your challenges are interwoven with your identity and societal influences. I'm attuned to moments where societal norms might either support you or create obstacles, and together, we'll amplify the supportive aspects while breaking down barriers.

These two approaches complement each other seamlessly, valuing your personal journey while recognizing the impact of society.

At Affirm Counseling, my goal is to guide you through healing, renewal, and growth. My hope is that the awareness and strength you gain will extend far beyond our sessions.

Moving beyond the office or usual tech platforms, Walk & Talk utilizes walking in nature as part of the growth and healing process. Getting outside the confines of a square room brings different considerations to the counseling process.

My Story

Hailing from the vibrant cityscape of Los Angeles, California, I was raised with a deep appreciation for baseball, the warmth of the sun, and the hidden treasures of thrift stores.

My career journey naturally led me to roles centered around empowering and guiding young minds, igniting a passion for the realm of counseling. My path took me from Southern California to the Pacific Northwest, where I earned a Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Southern Oregon University.
